As a means of coordinating a seamless and efficient emergency response mission with reliable streams of communication between rescue teams, a satellite phone fits into any professional response strategy. Its ability to connect from virtually anywhere on the planet means it can bypass any existing, potentially damaged, ground networks, allowing information to be sent and received with ease.
Commercial fishing vessels, freight liners, or other workboats need to be properly equipped with a communications system that allows them to connect to other vessels, marine emergency units, or back to shore. A satellite phone system that allows for voice calls, SMS and data sends, and GPS tracking will ensure a duty of care has been put in place for the crew, and enables the vessel's location to be visible in case of an emergency.
Staff and field operatives sent to remote regions of the world for jobs such as pipeline maintenance, power supply inspection, or safety marshalls at long-distance endurance race events, equipping them with a satellite phone helps to bridge the communication gap between them and the headquarters or ops room. With SOS functionality built-in, our satellite phones are put in place to perform a duty of care for lone workers.
